BTG co-founder Arida to replace Esteves as Paris keynote


Persio Arida, the co-founder of the fast-growing Brazil-based BTG Pactual global asset management and banking group and a former governor of the Brazilian central bank, is to replace his partner Andre Esteves as a keynote speaker at the forthcoming EuroHedge Summit that will take place in Paris later this month.

Esteves will be unable to travel from Brazil as BTG Pactual’s hotly-awaited IPO – one of the most keenly-anticipated flotations in the global financial world for several years – is now due to price on 25 April, the day when he was scheduled to speak in Paris.
